Seared Yellow Wax Beans and Arugula


  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 1 pound yellow wax beans, trimmed

  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced

  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • 2 cups baby arugula


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the wax beans, shallots and garlic, and cook, tossing as needed until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the lemon juice, thyme leaves and red pepper flakes. Season with salt. Cook until the beans are just tender, while still retaining a bite, 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in the arugula leaves and cook until just wilted, 1 minute more. Transfer to a platter and serve.
